A Safe Place
The Parish of Prescot takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously. We have adopted the national Church of England’s robust procedures and guidelines. You can find out more about the national policies and procedures at www.churchofengland.org.

Arts and music are central to our life and worship at St Mary’s, and we have a thriving traditional, all-age, robed choir. Click here to find out more about our choir.
